Doctor's Appointment Yesterday!




I had my doctor's appointment yesterday, which of course was fun. The nurse came in marked an X where Bob is, did the questions and all of the other stuff that they do, gave me a paper vest. You would think with how much this is going to cost, they would give me a threadbare hospital gown. After having to get half undressed in front of my 5 year old (doctor's appointment was at the same time she would get out of school) the doctor come in feels Bob and tells me that he a fatty growth. That's the good news. The bad news is that he is still coming out! I was given 2 options. 1. The doctor could freeze or numb up Bob and the area and cut him out in his office (DON'T THINK SO!). or 2. Go to the surgical center where they will give me some nice calming drugs in an IV where I really won't care what is going on and if I am really nice they will give me a little caffeine through the IV to ward of that lovely headache if I don't have my 2-3 cup of coffee by 9:00am. I believe I pick..........Option 2! Go for the drugs! I told the doctor I would consider that a vacation! He said that wasn't a vacation and I told him he doesn't have 3 kids! Anyway they will call me and let me know when Bob will be removed. Hopefully next week will be the surgery because I have things to do in the next few months (Organizing a garage sale for my son's high school and getting the garden going as soon as this cold stuff goes away).

I will catch up with my visiting with everyone tonight as my family has run out of things to wear and everything is piling up! Uggg!

  4. Call me brave, or maybe stupid, but I would have chosen getting it removed then and there. Those outpatient surgery drugs always make me sick sick sick. Then again, a mini vacation sounds pretty darn good. Maybe the weather will be warm come March 12 and you can catch some rays while relaxing in a chaise lounge sipping iced coffee.

  5. I get a kick of how you named it. I don't even know what it is but good luck having it taken out. Hope it leaves you forever....Christine

  7. Susan, I'm so happy that you got "good" news. I think the hard part is over...waiting to hear exactly what "Bob" is would be the bad part to the whole ordeal. My daughter had the same thing and had it removed as you are going to -- in day surgery with drugs -- she never missed a beat! Make the most of "surgery"...get lots of rest and enjoy your time off!

    Hugs ~ Donna
